The joy was overshadowed by Eden Dzeko's late winner for the champions at Craven Cottage.
“It's always good for a striker to score," he said. "Of course I'm happy to have scored, but not happy because we lost.
“Second half, we were too deep and they had a lot of possession. We had to be a bit braver. We defended very well, but in the end they scored. That's sport.
"It was hard today because they are very very good, but we let them play.”
